Quality climb and glad I got to do it before it fell down. Lead the first pitch then wandered off track. 2nd the rest of the way up

P2+4. Get in before it falls down.

What a top route, wanted to get it done before the top pitch rolls down the hill, will be a shame when it does.

Linked the first 4 pitches to an impromptu hanging belay below the ravens' nest at the yew tree belay, rucksack hauling, a good outing!
Nick Russell - AltLd O/S - 22/Apr/12 with Charlie Beard

VERY wet first section. Perfectly manageable despite this. Impromptu hanging belay below the upper ledge with the yew tree due to angry ravens. Use runners carefully on the top pitch to avoid dragging the ropes through plentiful guano!
